russian parliament mean today? >> it authorizes russia to use force in ukraine. it appears it happened after the fact in the sense that over the last 24 hours we have reports of troop movement, of russian movement from russia proper into crimea. the russians are saying that that's occurring under the pretext of the troops that are already there, and so that's a large contingent, some 15,000, but it looked pretty clear that they're doing more than just rotating troops. those troops have been out in the field, and the russian parliament has also called for more of the withdrawal of the ambassador in the united states in response to the speech that obama gave yesterday. so clearly the temperature is rapidly rising, and russia seems to want to escalate the situation, not to back down. >> what about the possible e.u. response? they're scheduled to have more crisis talks a second time in a couple of weeks. what can they do? >> well, they're really moving, i think, on two fronts.
